MADE TO ORDER - Please allow 4 weeks for shipping so that we can make this shirt especially for you.
If you need it before this time frame, please let us know when you need your order and we will try to work it into the schedule sooner. If you need a shirt right away, please check the "In Stock" listings for immediate shipping.

We ship via USPS Priority Mail - Insured for safety and so that you will receive your order in 2-3 days once the package is posted, plus you can track your package on-line.

SMALL - Garment measures 42" around but the gussets give extra room in the chest area. Your hips, waist or girth should not be more than 38"; the chest can be a few inches more and still fit properly. The sleeves (nape to wrist) measure 32" long which will fit most people that wear a small or medium modern size shirt. Note: If the small measurements are right for you except the hips, we can make a shirt with side slits to accommodate that issue but it will have to be on the production schedule. Convo us, if interested.
